If you are asking for help with a specific item, please include a link to the item’s details page since it's not a 100% problem, example

The only Download options are for 64Kbps MP3 ZIP (82 MB)
VBR ZIP (253 MB)

These are just 2 examples, and there used to be a Lossless option.

I'm seeing this too. Temporary workaround would be the individual files listed on the main part of the page - under the "Shorten" or "FLAC" column.

Oh, the lack of zips is deliberate, see
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=60401

-due to space issues, SHN and FLAC zips have *not* been retained. we plan to have "zip on the fly" working but it is reportedly quite buggy right at the moment and we will work to fix that. we might try to come up with a better way to make it easy for folks to download all the SHN or FLAC or VBR MP3s or 64kb MP3s for an item. we are doing our best to work on this

Meanwhile, the actual lossless files *are* available on the 2 examples cited above. (Users are possibly reporting totally-absent lossless on a couple items, so that is why giving specific examples is important- thanks!)

Odd, Diana, but at the time I posted, I saw two filesets in different status. One had finished deriving and had only the lossy derivatives available in zip. The other was in mid-derivation, and only the LOSSLESS derivatives were available in zip.

If you see this sometime during the next hour, you'll see what I mean:

The lossies are being created as I write this, but under "Download", there's a "Lossless" option - which I'm guessing will disappear as soon as all of the lossies are available to be zipped.

Hi Dave, that's the zip on the fly - which will contain all formats once the lossies finish.

I'm not sure why all items don't display that. I wonder if it will disappear when the deriver finishes...
